Hmm. Good point- all are quality MVP selections, but their team's record could be the determining factor.

I think the NO defense is more accountable for the team's success thus far than Brees' performance. The guy put up near-record numbers last season, but failed to bring them to the playoffs.
Favre has been so impressive, Adrian Peterson has had to do little. Last year, they needed dominating performances from him each week to have a good chance to win.
Brees did put up monster numbers last year but his team wasn't in this position last year. That's why Gregg Williams and Darren Sharper, in my opinion, have been among the best offseason additions throughout the league.
